Soccer: North/South NS LEAGUE


The new North/South Tipperary League kicked off on Saturday last with Clerihan from the Tipperary Southern District League securing an emphatic win over their Northern District opponents. This new competition brings together the top four teams, based on last years league standings , from South and North Tipperary Leagues with the hope that more competitive matches will help to improve standards.

Sean Maher gave Clerihan the lead  after five minutes with a sweetly struck shot to the corner while Luke Hahessy doubled the home team’s advantage shortly after. Clerihan , playing some composed and measured football, were good value for their 2-0 half-time lead. Ballymackey pushed on hard after the resumption but could not penetrate a resolute home defence, in which Jack Burke and Eoin O’Donovan were excellent. John Alan Lowes made the game safe for Clerihan with a clinical finish midway through the second half and Shane Hickey got in on the act late on with a fourth goal. Ballymackey were awarded a penalty when the Clerihan keeper Eoin Power upended an attacker but  Eoin then produced a wonderful save to deny the visitors a consolation goal.

This was an encouraging start to the season for Clerihan who had the outstanding player on the pitch in the shape of midfielder Sean Maher.
